Hi guys,

I have just started to look for a house here in louisville. My uncle told me to stay away from Jtown because of the very very high property tax rates. My questions is where can you find out the different rates for each area? Why is Jtown so much higher than everywhere else? And how much higher is it based on the average in Louisville? I have seen a lot of houses in Jtown that I like. Thanks for any help provided

i didnt think jtown had high property taxes. but dont hold me to that. Anchorage however, does have high taxes only because it has its own school system. Other then that, i dont know of any other place in jefferson county with high property taxes.

Default Taxes

Generally, the taxes in Louisville are very low. They average about $1.00 per thousand for the county services area. Nearer the city the taxes go up to about $1.23 per thousand but it includes trach pickup.

There are several neighborhoods that have additional taxes but each one is different. J-town in right around $1.16 per thousand which is relatively low compared to other neighborhods.

It really comes down to finding a home that fits your needs, has a good price and is in a neighborhood that has solid resale value. J=town has very solid resale values.

Jefferson County, and nearly every other county in Kentucky, has many property taxing zones. You must know your specific property's taxing districts to know the full tax base. In most Kentucky locales, your next door neighbor literally may not be in the same district as you are.

This link takes you to all Kentucky taxing zones, but you will have to go to each county's PVA to get the exact tax for any particular address:
